Curcugen, the curcumin-infused dark chocolate, can offer support in gut health and mood management

DolCas Biotech, a company specialising in developing functional foods and beverages, will introduce a new chocolate prototype containing its flagship curcumin ingredient Curcugen. 

The reveal will occur at the Vitafoods Europe in Geneva, booth #N217, May 14-16, 2024.

“Increased consumer focus on health and wellness continues to drive demand for functional treats. People are looking for convenient ways to incorporate bioactive ingredients into their daily routines, and functional platforms offer a flavourful and accessible option.” asserts Dr Shavon Jackson-Michel, Director of Medical & Scientific Affairs for DolCas Biotech.


What's special about the product?

Blending two antioxidant-rich, astringent ingredients—cocoa and turmeric extract— creates a real challenge. To tackle this, DolCas partnered with a boutique chocolate maker to create the perfect chocolate with all the sensory experience consumers crave. 

The collaboration resulted in an indulgent chocolate bite enriched with Curcugen’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits to suit consumers. 

The product delivers a clinically-supported dose of 500mg of Curcugen, based on a number of published studies. Curcugen has been shown to support gut mobility and mood health, as well as improve post-exercise recovery time.
